olive think carefully about the short jacket option, if you are tall..your legs could look like girders...

I like that first Hobbs one

(interesting factoid - I used to be a Miss Jones)

Can you wear black to a wedding? I think a nice black one with a bright top would do.

Also, taking the girls, how do I fit all their shite in a nice bag?????!!!! I will look like I am going away for the weekend.

girders?

am not getting an image bundle love

do you mean they will look too long?

dressy coats are hideous imo Avoid at all costs There is a nice linen suit in jigsaw

bundle Thu 18-May-06 13:33:53

yes olive, could look toooo long.

also - does the trinny & susannah mantra "never wear colour with black" still stand??

there's a nice spotty (indigo/paler blue) one on the monsoon website..can't directly link to page but it's under casual jackets.
